  • i got them too ! my tricks, shave often with sensitive shaving cream (don't let your hair grow too long), change the blades often, lotion after shaving. you can't reall get rid of bumps, they'll go away after a few days, but there things you can do to prevent them.

  • The Slumber Parties company sells Coochie Cream for that purpose.

  • shave with the hair, not against it. (hope that makes sense) instead of using expensive shaving cream, just use your conditioner! works just as well.

  • Yeah... conditioner. Just get your fav scent of Suave or whatever, I use that cause it's cheap!
